Many congratulations to Andy Warren, M0KGZ, who became the first candidate to pass the Direct to Full licence exam, which was available from late January 2023.
Andy first discovered radio aged 11, and subsequently went into a career in the design and manufacture of electronic equipment. On retirement, he got back into radio and discovered the Direct to Full Exam, which suited him better than working through the licence levels, given his electronics background.
Andy is currently enjoying SDR and is looking forward to trying out some of his own design ideas, particularly with low power.
